Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, what more can we ask for in a movie? The pair star in Disney's latest live-action movie, Jungle Cruise.

Inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride, the movie is an adventure-filled, Amazon-jungle expedition. A riverboat captain named Frank (Johnson) takes a scientist (Blunt) and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on a mission into a jungle to find the Tree of Life which is believed to possess healing powers.

All the while, the trio must fight against dangerous wild animals and a competing German expedition.

Disney also shared the new poster for the movie
